After being up for an insane amount of hours, BHW and I decided now would be the best time
to make breakfast in bed! Complete with oatmeal, egg sandwiches, and coffee, and of course exhaustion on the side. If you can't tell by BHW's hat, we were a little slap happy.
Aside from worrying that our drinks were going to spill at any second, it was really relaxing!
What a perfect ending to a fun filled week dedicated to love and list making!
For those of you that didn't hear.. BHW dedicated an entire week to Valentine's Day.
I'm a lucky girl! He made a little speech about how this whole week we're going to cross off a
ton of stuff from my 2012 Bucket List. Needless to say, I was pumped! BHW gave me a tie-dye kit and we spent the evening staining our hands with dye.
I won't go through all the steps, it's too long and complicated, and we didn't really do half of them anyways. We had so much fun figuring out what in the heck we are doing since neither of us had tie-dyed. We opted to just ball up the shirt and squirt it with dye and see what happened. BHW went with blue and orange, his favorite colors and I chose yellow and purple, my favorite colors.
His turned out really good! The colors were super vibrant! Mine.. well..
let's just say you can't tell I started out with yellow and purple based on what the shirt looks like now.
Check out the finished project below! Which one do you like better?
9PM: Ran to Target to grab some all-nighter essentials (see picture below) Super hyper and excited!
10PM: Changed into comfy clothes and popped in Star Wars Episode 1. Wow, how confusing is it to watch a movie after you've seen the ending of the series?! I was completely lost. Hyper. BHW has already drank 1 of our 4 energy drinks and has eaten half a bag of chocolate.
11PM: Wow, this movie is weird, Natalie Portman is like 23498 different people! BHW and I are already doubting that we'll be able to stay up all night. I'm still awake with no energy supplements.. unless Twizzlers count?
12AM: Movie's over. Time to get movin! I did a few jumping jacks and push-ups to get my blood flowing. BHW opted to move to another seat and play Xbox. I did a little homework. Feeling alright. Eyes getting heavier.
1AM: BHW still on the Xbox, looking at the T.V. made me sleepy, looking at the computer didn't help either. Searching to find something to keep me awake. Coloring in my new coloring book sufficed. I haven't had any energy supplements yet!
2AM: I caved and made a cup of coffee, it's downhill from here. Watched the 2nd Episode of Star Wars. Only 4 more hours until I can sleep.
3AM: 3 o'clock came and went without much activity. Eyes glued to the T.V., time went much faster. Hoping the next few hours go by smoothly. Popcorn and a glass of ice water kept me wide awake. BHW, on the other hand, has been having a harder time staying awake. He keeps wanting to lay on the couch, the prime place to fall asleep! No worries, I keep flicking his nose to keep him awake. :P
4AM: Apparently time has come to a halt. Episode 2 of Star Wars is over and BHW can hardly keep his eyes open. I'm not that tired really, but sleep does sound awfully nice right about now. Going to work on some homework to pass a little bit of time. BHW is playing more Xbox, that seems to perk him up. My tummy is hurting, probably from all the junk food I've been eating all night. Wah. :(
5AM: By far the worst hour of the night. I'm not even tired but my brain keeps telling me I shouldn't be awake. Tryingto stay occupied doing something.. hence me updating right now. My hair has progressively gotten crazier and my eyelids droopier. Can't wait to do homework all day tomorrow..not.
6AM: SLEEP. If this is what being a mother is like... count me out.
The most beautiful day in February just so happened to be the day BHW took me to see the sunset.
BHW is usually pretty good with surprises and I had no clue where we were going. We wandered around and took some back roads for about 10 minutes until I mustered up the courage to ask the question you never ask a man, 'Do you know where you're going?' He answered with the simplest of answers.. 'no, but we're almost there.' Oh.. umm? Ok. Whatever you say mister! He took one more turn and we parked in someone's driveway. I had no clue what in the world we were doing. I commented on the beautiful sunset and BHW just chuckled. 'We're here to do #17. You didn't figure that out yet?' :P I love him so much, what a perfect day for a perfect sunset. Another plus was the people whose driveway we were in didn't come home while we were parked there for 20 minutes.
I completed this with the help of BHW and his best friend MCE!
A little back story; I spent my Saturday outside in a blizzard playing ultimate frisbee in Cincinnati Ohio, and my phone had died during the night. On the way back to Ball State, I turned my phone on to see if I had any battery life left. While looking at the blinking empty battery light on my phone I got a text from BHW that said 'Call me ASAP :)' and then the screen went black. I borrowed a friends phone to call my boyfriend back, surprisingly I got his number right on the first try.
He picked up and told me that by luck of the draw, he had received some tickets to a
Miami of Ohio hockey game for free! He also said he knew I'd be tired from the tournament but that he also knew 'go to a hockey game' was on my bucket list.
If you don't know BHW he is SO not spontaneous so I was shocked to get this last minute invitation, he's such a sweetie. I convinced my teammates to drop me off at BHW's parent's house on the way home from our tournament and BHW would meet me there and we'd head off to the game with MCE! (Thanks teammates for dropping me off!) I tried to get a little nap in before the game but I was too excited for the hockey game! We got to the game and our seats were only 3 rows back! I couldn't contain my excitement, I had to get popcorn, it just felt right for my first ever hockey game!
No, I didn't know any of the rules, I freaked out when people started throwing each other into
the walls! The only hockey related thing I've ever seen is the Mighty Ducks, and that was years ago.
BHW said to keep my eyes on the puck at all times because we were right at the level where the pucks come flying! We actually came close to getting hit once! It was a little exciting. haha. I got to see a Zambonie too! It was so cool to see them make the ice all shiny and 'new' again.
Well, I won't go into all the details but the game was SO awesome! Miami won with a score of 4-1!
Thanks again BHW and MCE for taking me to my first hockey game.
